Stewart Creek Golf and Country Club in Alberta's Canadian Rockies

Stewart Creek Golf & Country Club is a new, upscale golf course in Alberta's Canadian Rockies in the mountain town of Canmore and the flagship course of the Three Sisters Mountain Village.

Across the valley from another modern mountain golf course, Silvertip Golf Resort, Stewart Creek opened in 2000 and was designed by Gary Browning. The course carries a mining theme throughout as a result of its site on a former coal mine. Stewart Creek Golf & Country Club's first hole features a mine entrance, as well as the par-4 14th hole. It's a championship layout with five sets of tee boxes, including a back set of tees that plays over 7,100 yards.

The golf course is named after the creek, named after miner Archibald Stewart, that runs before the 15th green.

Brandon Tucker is the Sr. Managing Editor for GolfPass and was the founding editor of Golf Advisor in 2014, he was the managing editor for Golf Channel Digital's Courses & Travel. To date, his golf travels have taken him to over two dozen countries and nearly 600 golf courses worldwide. While he's played some of the most prestigious courses in the world, Tucker's favorite way to play the game is on a great muni in under three hours.
